This comes after Grammy's host Trevor Noah defended the "Cruel Summer" songstress following backlash over her appearance at several of her boyfriend Travis Kelce's football games.

“I think it is so unfair how NFL fans have been complaining about the cameras panning to Taylor Swift, like she’s controlling the cameras at the game," he said earlier in the show. "Let her live! In fact, on Taylor’s behalf, every time someone says Taylor Swift, I am going to cut to someone whose played football. You like that, Terry Crews? You better fix that face, Terry! No relaxing, Terry."
